[A tall redheaded woman is seen bringing hand made simple but warm clothes to the various hospices within the quartier during the afternoon. She leaves no name and keeps to herself besides leaving the items]

Often a lone figure could be seen distributing food, and supplies to the less well-off individuals of the City. A strange 'show' of magic follows him, as he seems to chant in a strange language that makes his hands glow to 'miracle' away diseases and injuries, one fortunate soul at a time. In the night, he watches over the district protecting the common folk from the ne'er-do-Wellers who prowl the streets looking for their next victim.

Overnight, it seems a small camp has cropped up in the Ouvrier. Food, Clothes, Water, and all manner of supplies are distributed freely by a man beside a foreign banner. What it represented at large remaining somewhat shrouded in mystery. But it seems he's there to stay. At night, the rustling of metal plates could be heard steel boots march along cobbles in staunch defense of those unfortunate enough to have not made it back before dark.

A Warden of Ezra with cheerful disposition is spied posting notices about the district; she greets all who she encounters, offers aide to those who appear to need it, and spends time offering healing and comforts to those that accept at whatever cost to time and resource may be required. She encourages those that see her posting the notices to attend.


The notices indicate an upcoming Fifth Day Sermon to be held at the Ste. Mere and identify the Warden as Abigail Shuttleworth, the woman holding the event.

Black stains adorn the walls of the Colibri Theatre in spidery scrawl. It's transcribed in High Mordentish, Low Mordentish, Sithican, and the Trade Tongue.

Broken things,

Is your voice as HAUNTING as your disfigured face?
Do you curse those too BLIND to see the line between their madness and your truth is thing as VEINS?
Are the FIRES within stoked by your DANCE with the ugliness of each dying BREATH?

The world waits to see what sights are hidden away by DARKNESS and FILTH. For those who can MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND.

Leave a gift of your ART upon the altar of this liar's HUSK. Perform something TERRIBLE and BEAUTIFUL, and I will find you.

A hood man leaves an offering in front of the Colibri theater.   Said offering is a mish mash of individual gears put together that appear to be some used to create sort of mechanism. Although if one even attempts to use it by using the small make shift wire crank, the mechanism doesn't do anything - appearing to be jammed.  Though at least some sort of attempt was made to create.... something.

Notices are posted about the Ouvrier, advertising the disappearance of a girl and calling for assistance. The circumstances are far from uncommon, and few gossips even bother to remember the missing girl's name...

Overnight the notices are added to, advertising a reward from a third party for information leading to the girl's safe return.

In the middle of the night, a lone armored warrior with a white tabbard and Ezra's insigna, can be seen braving the heart of the Quartier to a specific place where mists raises from the ground, trying his best to fight whatever is present, tiny or huge as they might be.

Not always victorious, hew can be seen limping back to one of the hotel in the Marchand area, avoiding the more obviously closer Hospices in the Ouvirer.

For the past several days pained screams and moans could be heard coming from room 6 of the tenements.  Whoever is staying there is certainly in a great deal of agony.

Residents note the owner of Room 5, a typical outgoing elven bard, taking an interest both in frustration and curiosity as to the events taking place in Room 6.  He often emerges with a drink in one hand, book and quill in the other.  Mumbling about not being able to concentrate on his writing during his sabatical from Barovia.

Once more, the same black stains adorn the walls of the Colibri Theatre in spidery scrawl. They're transcribed in High Mordentish, Low Mordentish, Sithican, and the Trade Tongue.

The Colibri theatre erupts into violence late in the evening, with the sounds of an impromptu spoken performance giving way to a strange flash of red light, and moments later, a gurgled scream. Three bodies are left upon on the floor, two seemingly without any wounds at all, and a third impaled from behind by some immense and sharp instrument. Shadows and things yet darker still are on the lips of those hiding where the glittering lights don't shine, tonight. A few angry souls whisper a Gendarme was spotted crossing into the wrong side of town, while others boast promise of bloody vengeance for the transgressions. Whatever the truth, three witnesses are dead. If there are more who can say what really happened, fear, guilt, or something else has stilled their tongues.

The rattling of wheels echoed down the dingy streets of the Ouvrier just after sunrise. A gangling young woman was seen collecting the bodies of the dead, piling them on her shoddy pushcart one by one before making her way off to the cemetery. Stacks of cadavers of the destitute and deranged are offloaded there, seemingly to receive a proper burial.
